What happens when you make close to 2,000 ephemeral public domain films freely available on the Web? People make art and more films are born! Here’s a sample of films created with Prelinger Archives footage and uploaded to the Internet Archive. However, Rick Prelinger suspects thousands more are uploaded on other video sites. If you have a video you created using footage from the Prelinger Archives, please let us know so we can include it here. Topics: Prelinger mashup, remix, Prelinger

A remix of the opening sequence to "Rochester: a City of Quality".

Originally recorded in about 1989, this was one of the first times using my Roland TR-707 rhythm composer and Fostex X-30 multitrack cassette recorder. Two tracks of Ovation Matrix 6-string were open-air miked with an Audio Technica AT-41, and then the two vocal tracks were dubbed in through a Boss RRV10 reverb unit. 25 years later, the original cassette was remastered for digital import into Adobe Premiere, so any degradation in sound quality is proof of the analog age in which it was first...

Dynamic American Cities is the new digital dance track about community planning featuring original music by Lyndon Lorenz off the Casio SK-5 and mixed down to the Zoom MRS-1044. We can't quite figure out where the audio sample was lifted from -- you're on your own with that. Maybe it was from the 1961 General Motors film "Touch of Magic".

Wakey Wakey is primarily a Prelinger mashup. The song is by Paul Libman and Dave Hudson from the musical "A Cabin with a View" which is playing summer 2007 at American Folklore Theatre. Paul Libman does all of the vocals and instruments. The musical is set in the fifties, so it was a perfect match for Prelinger material. The song itself is new and is under copyright.

Primarily, I am a composer who tries to write music that is both original, and meaningful to the widest possible audience. However, at the same time, I've begun to create my own films because the combination of images and music is a powerful mode of expression, offering many more dimensions than just music by itself.
